Yes, you may! See requirements on the "What We're Looking For" page.

What is the maximum amount of submissions I can send in?

You may submit as many works as you like.

What age do I have to be to send in?

Any age can submit, if you think your writing is high quality. Whether you're a teenager, student, adult, professional, or senior, we would love to hear your story!

Does every one get published?

No, unfortunately we have too many submissions to accept everyone's writing. Still, give it a shot, you may get chosen!

Do I have to live in the U.S. to submit?

No, we welcome submission from animal lovers everywhere!

Will this be in print (hardcover/softcover)? What format?

This book will appear in print (hardcover and softcover) in all major bookstores, and possibly in ebook as well.

How do I contact you?

When will I hear back from you?

After submitting your writing a reply will be sent to you within a week. You will not be notified about whether you are going to be published until after the deadline (December 31, 2010).

Do I get payed for writing?

We are non-profit, so we generally do not pay writers. However, if you would like to negotiate a small price, you may contact us for more information.

Do I retain the rights to my story or artwork?

Yes, you do. All we ask is that you let us publish your work, and that your story is original and written by you.
